This session will discuss new data regarding the effects of volcanic fog on the health of Hawaii Volcano National Park workers. Additionally, we will focus on ways to build a state campaign for safer substitution for toxic chemicals. Lastly, there will be a discussion on linking environmental regulations to the prevention of chronic health damage among lithographic printers.
Session Objectives: 1. Investigate the associations of the visually observed volcanic fog (vog) on symptoms and lung function of the workers in the Hawaii Volcano National Park 2. Describe components of a safer substitution coalition 3. Recognize the linkage between environmental regulations and the development of safer alternatives to toxic cleanup solvents used in lithographic printing
